Radical Acceptance

Awakening the Love that Heals Fear and Shame


Formats & editions


RADICAL ACCEPTANCE is the first Buddhist 'how-to' book that focuses primarily on the classic personal development issue of healing fear and shame

In the West, most of us have suffered the fear of not being 'good enough', feeling insecure about our appearance, our sexuality, our intelligence, our spiritual progress or - often most importantly - being worthy of love. When these feelings of insufficiency or self-aversion are strong, we fear abandonment and rejection. Many people have already found the Buddhist perspective on the emotions to be extremely valuable - and this book will be a major practical contribution to the subject.
